What is zoomStand?
the first portable standing desk & laptop stand
What is it?
zoomStand® is a minimalistic alternative to standing desk, laptop stands and tablet holders currently on the market. We are in the process of prototyping what will be the last mobile support accessory you will need to comfortably use your laptop or tablet – in nearly any position you want.
Today, people are sitting behind laptop or tablet screens for a large part of their day. Numerous studies have shown that bad posture and sitting for prolonged periods each day can be detrimental to your health. Our goal is allow people to use their laptops and tablets more comfortably so they can get moving without killing their productivity.
Any device, any position, one solution.
How zoomStand Came About
zoomStand founders Chris Bunch and Chris Piper spend a lot of time behind computers; more than either of them would like, to be honest. We know many people feel the same way we do.
Bunch has designed and engineered everything from mass produced snow travel systems, including snowshoes and various styles of crampons to the electrical systems for a leading Formula 1000 racecar manufacturer. His work requires a lot of CAD design as well as a lot of time in the workshop, so being comfortable while on deadline is always a top priority.
Piper owns and operates a digital marketing agency and if you know anyone in marketing or advertising, you know they work, eat and sleep in or around their desk. On any given day Piper uses at least four different mobile devices in the office, at home and on the go; so being able to use them while maintaining a good posture and keeping energy up has always been a challenge.
zoomStand was created to simply create the product that we needed. The usage of multiple laptops and tablets throughout their day led to the frustration of working in uncomfortable positions, neck aches and the emptying of their wallets on standing desks that we could only use in one room and laptop stands that simply didn’t work.
“Personally, what I would like to know is, when is this fantastic thing coming out?”
“zoomStand is about to rock the stand world that allows you to set your tablet or laptop in more positions than the Karma Sutra.”

What makes zoomStand different?
zoomStand can be used with a single base or with multiple, allowing you to customize it’s width. So, no matter if you are using the smallest tablet, a behemoth laptop or projector, zoomStand can handle it.
Our minimalistic approach keeps it lightweight, highly portable and simple. Pack it up and throw it into your laptop bag, backpack or purse. Take only what you want, leave the rest.
The patent-pending modular design easily allows for expansion and a plethora of accessories that quickly attach and detach to the bases. Think cup holder, treadmill adapter (walking desk!), wheels, and more.
zoomStand will work with all electronic devices – laptops, tablets, projects, whatever you got. We’ve designed zoomStand to work with any mobile device you may own – from devices of yesteryear to whatever device you may have in the future. We have tested everything from 10″ to 17″ laptops and the most popular tablets on the market, with and without cases and with external keyboard attachments.
You can back our upcoming Kickstarter project so you will be one of the first people to own a zoomStand (and at a sweet discount). Join our mailing list for future details and know when our Kickstarter project launches.
We are relentlessly refining our design to keep the manufacturing costs as low as we can. It will be a fraction of the price of a traditional standing desk and inline with the costs of other premium laptop stands that are currently on the market.
we want to hear from you, really.
